February's Featured Manufacturers

Happy Tuesday morning all!  The first week of February has totally escaped me, and I haven't posted about our February featured manufacturers!  Bad blogger!

FebFancyPantsLayoutKim In February, we have 2 great companies to feature.  The first up is Fancy Pants.  Fancy Pants Designs has been around a while, and they are consistently coming up with some great and unique papers.  In this layout, DT Member Kim used their Arctic Chill papers and mixed in some Imaginisce i-Top brad punches, Prima flowers, October Afternoon label stickers, and the Martha Stewart Loops edge punch.

Remember, everything from Fancy Pants is AT LEAST 25% off the entire month of February.

The second company is Hero Arts stamps.  Hero Arts has been in the stamping business for a long time and makes wood-mounted rubber stamps, clear acrylic stamps, and has recently came out with cling-mounted rubber stamps.  We carry a number of their acrylic stamps, and have also picked up their Hero Arts Hues line with matching cardstock, folded cards, and envelopes along with some beautiful inks.

And of course, everything from Hero Arts is 25% off ALL MONTH of February.

NEW Design Team!

Starting today, February 1, we have a new Design Team in our online store.  The four ladies that have been with us for the past 7 months have been SO great to work with, and I'm going to miss not working with them.

CrystalMindy, Nicole, and Sarah have been an absolute dream to work with.  They did some fabulous work for our gallery, and the newsletter the past 7 months was TOP NOTCH!  We'll be sad to see them go, but we're sure we'll hear from them from time to time!  Good luck girls in whatever path you take!So without further adieu, I'd like to introduce you to our NEW Design Team.  They'll be posting daily over at the DT Blog and you'll also be seeing their work in the gallery, as well as our newsletter that hits your email box twice a month.  

Hi!Erica  I’m Erica and live in Oregon with my hubby, Andrew, and our two children Mickey, 3 years, and Audrey, 9 months.  I’m tall and talkative and totally in love with scrapbooking, photography and reading.  I love the color aqua, hanging out with my mom and garage sales.

Kim Hello!  My name is Kim and I scrap my life away from the beautiful Pacific Northwest!  I have been married to my best friend for 23 years and we have 7 kids, yes 7, and one granddaughter.  They keep life interesting and provide me with constant photo opportunities – when I can slow them down enough to catch them!  Scrapbooking is what grounds me in my ever changing world and I love to escape to my scrap room.  I especially love to have a reason to “HAVE TO SCRAP”!  I love to create and my scrapbook style is constantly evolving.  I can honestly say that I am inspired by the products and colors – they “talk” to me!  The most amazing thing about this hobby is all the wonderful people I meet!  I truly consider all my scrappin’ friends – family, and life just wouldn’t be the same without them.  The connection is so intense between those of us that “get it”!  I love that most!

Scarlett Hi! M y name is Scarlett. I live in wonderful WI (at least in every season except for winter!! LOL!) with my best friend and hubby, Dean, and our 2 children. Our son, Malik, is 13 and our daughter, Whitney, is 9. We run a small kennel business here at our house where we raise, train, and breed German Shepherds. DH also works for some other kennels, as well training. I am a Learning Facilitator by day (fancy name for teacher coach) in a Middle School and an avid paper crafter at night!

I have been scrapping off and on since high school, but it has only been the last few years that I have really been able to get to it the way I would like. It is soo helpful when your kids get older and can help keep themselves entertained!! I love creating LOs, cards, and altered items. My newest addiction is Mini Albums and ATCs. My goal for 2010 is to try out new techniques and add those into my projects as well.

Stacy My name is Stacy and I have been hooked on scrappin' for the past 7 years. I love pizza, but my all time favorite thing is STARBUCKS!!!  There is nothing like scrappin' with a fabulous cup of coffee!!!!
